It appears we were on to something back in October when we reported that Olympic diver Tom Daley was spotted hanging out with screenwriter Dustin Lance Black.

Yesterday, the athlete made a big splash when he released a video announcing he was gay in a relationship with another man. Since then, everyone’s been dying to know who the lucky man who convinced Daley to open up is.

“In spring this year, my life changed massively when I met someone and they made me feel so happy, so safe and everything just feels great,” Daley said. “And that someone is a guy.”

According to E! News’ Marc Malkin, that special someone the 19-year-old Olympic bronze medalist mentioned is definitely 39-year-old Academy Award-winning screenwriter and LGBT activist Black.

We contacted Black, who just returned from screening Milk in St. Petersburg, Russia, for comment but haven’t yet received a response. If the rumors are indeed true, then we congratulate the sexy new couple. May your love blossom and grow this December.
